Inverurie Loco Works 4-4 Annan Athletic

Inverurie Loco Works captain Neil McLean scored a magnificent last-minute solo goal to earn his team a Scottish Cup third-round replay against Annan.

After Peter Weatherson smashed Annan into the lead, fine finishes from McLean, Andy Hunter and Martin Laing put the Highland League side ahead.

A Steven Swinglehurst header, Stuart McColm's close-range finish and Weatherson's second turned it round.

But McLean's mazy run and sublime shot from the left wing forced a replay.
